An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss---with a new
preface and epilogue Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an
instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family:
his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not
experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will
taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that
transforms it. A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether
due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The
circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is.
In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a
new life---one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper
appreciation of simple blessings.
